All network traffic blocked when using NetGuard on LOS 17.1
"NetGuard provides simple and advanced ways to block access to the internet - no root required." (https://f-droid.org/en/packages/eu.faircode.netguard/)
It is a local VPN, which allows to whitelist/blacklist based on WiFi or mobile connection and enable/disable certain apps.
Unfortunately, the developer gives this information:
"Some Android versions, including LineageOS for some devices, contain a bug resulting in all internet traffic being blocked. Mostly, you can workaround this bug by enabling filtering in NetGuard's Advanced options. If this doesn't solve the issue, the problem can unfortunately not be fixed or worked around by NetGuard."
Every connection is blocked by default, while Netguard VPN is turned on. Trying the developers' fix recommendation won't work.
Exists since 15.1, was working in 14.1 More details on this bug here: https://bugtracker.fairphone.com/project/fairphone-lineageos-on-fairphone/issue/50
